GUNNY G: Dr RON PAUL RIGHT AGAIN/YET !!!!! !!!!!
By Chuck BaldwinJuly 10, 2014NewsWithViews.comJust as they did with his father, Ron Paul, globalist elitists within the GOP are pouncing on Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul. Obviously, the only reason for Republican leaders to be ganging up on Rand like this is because
they are scared silly that he might just win the Republican nomination for President in 2016. And if there is anything that frightens the GOP establishment, it is an independent-minded, non-interventionist, reader of the Constitution–you know, someone like George Washington or Thomas Jefferson–or Rand Paul.Here is how Politico covered the story:

He was quick to temper his remarks, however, by adding that only “some people” in America are actuated by racism. Nevertheless, his position was clear: the United States is a racist country, and therefore President Obama has been “treated differently” as has he than any of his predecessors.

There would be no more excuses for Republicans’ failure to put forward their own health-care plan, immigration proposals, specific cuts to popular government programs, and pet causes involving abortion, birth control and gay rights. This would set up real clashes with Obama — who could employ the veto pen he hasn’t used a single time since Republicans gained control of the House in 2010 — and sharp contrasts that would put him on the winning side of public opinion.It is not hard to imagine a

Christopher Hitchens got a chance to analyze the Tea Party in 2011, the same year cancer took his life. In a Vanity Fair article titled “Tea’d Off,” the great polemicist explains that populist movements like the Tea Party are a reaction to social and political change.
Hitchens writes that before the Revolutionary War costumes, America had seen a somewhat similar phenomenon with the John Birch Society:The John Birch Society possessed such a mainstream message–the existence of a Communist world system with tentacles in the United States–that it had a potent influence over whole sections of the Republican Party.
The RINOs: A HistoryThe Feehery Theory

When news broke that Eric Cantor had lost his primary, Ed Gillespie, the Republican nominee for the Virginia Senate seat, immediately tweeted congratulations to David Brat. The rest of the Republican party establishment, the non-sentimental lot that it is, fell into line and pledged to support the winner.Cantor had been defeated.
There was no talk of starting a third party or sitting the election out. Sure, there was some anger and disappointment, but rank and file Republicans moved on.Contrast with the news of what happened last night. Long before it became clear that Thad Cochran, a long-time Republican incumbent and overall highly respected senior Statesman, had been reelected, Tea Partiers had a existential meltdown.
Sarah Palin went on Sean Hannity’s Show and threatened to start a third party. Prominent bloggers cried that if they didn’t get their way, they would drop out of politics entirely. Laura Ingraham, who led the charge against Cantor, threatened to join Palin.The biggest epithet the Tea Party crowd likes to throw at prominent establishment types like me is that we are RINO’s.
A RINO is a Republican In Name Only. But who is really the RINO? The one who fights for the nominee no matter who he or she is or the one who threatens to bolt the party every time a primary election doesn’t go their way?This ideological fight has been going on a long time.It started when Teddy Roosevelt – who is most famous these days for occasionally winning the President’s race at Nationals stadium – started the Bull Moose Party because he thought his successor wasn’t doing a sufficient job in continuing his legacy.Roosevelt accused William Howard Taft of not really being a Republican, and vice versa.
The fight continued in the 1920’s, when Joe Cannon of Illinois battled with Bob LaFollette of Illinois. In the 1950’s, Robert Taft accused the Eisenhower Republicans of being insufficiently opposed to the New Deal, in the 1960’s, Goldwater Republicans drummed the Rockefeller Republicans out of the party, in the 1960’s, Ford battled Reagan, and in the 1980’s, the Bushs fought the Reaganites.In the late 1990’s and into the 2000’s, a great ideological sorting took place among the parties.
There was no longer a moderate wing to the GOP. The Republican party was the pro-life, pro-defense, pro-growth and pro-business party, while the Democrats were pro-choice, pro-labor and the largely pacifist.The failures in the Iraq War and the financial crisis of 2007-2008 shook the three-legged stool, and in 2010, a new force, the Tea Party, came to the table.
The Tea Party is far more libertarian, far more isolationist, far less in favor of big business, far more anti-immigrant and far more reactionary than the typical Republican regular.They are far more likely to want to bolt the party if things don’t go their way.This is a familiar, but not dominant, strain in the Republican Party.
They are the Lindbergh isolationists in the 1930’s, the John Birchers in the 1950’s, the Yaffers in the 1960, the Libertarians in the 1970’s. They supported Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan in the 1990’s.And now they are very, very angry that the Republican Party beat them in Mississippi. Some of them will leave the party, some will sit out the next election, and some will continue to agitate within the party structure and within the Tea party movement.And ironically, they will be the ones to call out the rest of us RINOs.
But we know who they are and who we are.TOPICS: Mississippi; Issues; Parties; U.S. SenateKEYWORDS: cantor; cochran; mcdaniel; palinGot that?John Feehery is currently the President of Quinn Gillespie Communications and Director of QGA Government Affairs.

In order to understand their surroundings, human beings depend on their brain’s ability to organize, identify, and interpret a barrage of sensory information that allows them to perceive, among other things, a potential threat.
There has been a gross misperception among a large number of people who observe American politics that the greatest threat to this country, and more specifically its democracy, is the rise of extremists in the conservative movement.

While it is satisfying to watch Barack Hussein Obama’s presidency coming apart, it has made him a dangerous enemy who will strike without warning. He is being exposed as a fraud and the pressure of being found out is driving him to be increasingly reckless and dangerous.
He’s quickly morphing into something resembling a wounded animal.His latest assault on us, his American enemies, involves erasing our Southern border to allow tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal alien children and gang members to walk in, sit down and start demanding whatever they think they are entitled to get.
We’re hearing rumors Obama is about to use an executive order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens so they can vote Marxist/Democrat in November.

When we think of Lincoln, most of us do not consider the sixteenth president as a Marxist revolutionary.

They want to elect Republicans, any Republicans, even liberal Republicans. It’s a power thing. I get it. We are in the business, albeit volunteer business, of electing conservative Republicans. And, we don’t care what the Democrats or liberal media or the Republican establishment tells us. We know conservative solutions solve problems.There is a reason God has you here, today.

By Diane Kepus
May 18, 2014
Many claim the Tea Party movement awakened a sleeping giant in the conservative grassroots and injected a much-needed energy into the GOP. I gladly welcome that label as do many other Conservative Americans. It was because of the work of the Tea Party wave that allowed for the 2010 Republican House to become the majority in Congress. The unbending demands and unfiltered
talk of those associated with the movement have made life difficult for Republican Party leaders who charge the Tea Party with wrecking the GOP. It’s called “bringing it back to what it used to stand for”.

REPUBLICAN PARTY, RED FROM THE START
by Alan Stang
February 1, 2008
Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952.
We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican. Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course.
The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”

Amnesty: Politicians Put Their Mouth Where Their Money Is
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD February 7, 2014
News Flash – Republicans and Democrats do not work for the American people.
For the most part, the US government is a racket, a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem that may not exist, would not be affected if it did exist, or only exists due to the actions of government itself.
American politicians exploit the racket to run a swindle, taking money or property from someone by using lies or tricks.
One could successfully argue that many of those operating within our present political environment are in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961-1968) enacted into law on October 15, 1970.
In general, Republicans and Democrats con voters into giving them the power to use the voters’ own money (taxes) for the purpose of rewarding themselves and the wealthy donors, who fund their political campaigns and provide them with post-government employment.
